I have loved everything Peanuts since I was a little kid. Charles M. Schulz classic cast of characters had always put a smile on my face. So I'm very excited to share the news of what's coming next for this popular comic. KaBOOM!, the all-ages imprint of award winning publisher BOOM! Studios, has been publishing Peanuts anthology style comics for over the past two years, and will be releasing something special in celebration of Peanuts' 65th anniversary. This February, they will debut their first non-anthology issue in Peanuts #25 with an oversized, original story inspired by the masterworks of Charles M. Schulz.
Paige Braddock (Eisner Award-nominated Jane's World, Creative Director at Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates) and Vicki Scott (The Beagle Had Landed; It's Tokyo, Charlie Brown!) are taking Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts back to summer camp in a 32-page, long-form story.
BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon talked about the release by saying,
We wanted to celebrate that milestone, and especially the 65th anniversary, with something we've never done with Peanuts before, and we're very excited to show you the results!
I think this is a very exciting development that I hope will lead to more things like it. To be able to experience new stories with these characters is going to be a treat for long time fans of the series, and also for new readers as well. Peanuts has something that no other comic will ever have, and I think it's important to keep it alive. Peanuts #25 will arrive in comic shops from KaBOOM! on February 18th.
